In 2021, the University of Alberta's Business Students Association held a panel discussion with Black entrepreneurs in the Edmonton area, most of whom were alumni. The entrepreneurs shared a commonality in turning to entrepreneurship after facing racism in the workforce.
This workshop was facilitated by Angelique Bulosan and featuring the creative works of Julian Wilson. They raised awareness of organizational anti-racism practices and empowered graduates to contribute to working against racism as they lead within organizations, as well as students who want to contribute to a diverse and equitable school atmosphere.
This training was experiential, highly interactive and provided a unique combination of team building, learning through dialogue and presentation. Regardless of where the individual is at in their journey, this training integrated meaningful learning by guiding individuals to come to realizations on their own.
